What Do I Need to Get Started?

If you own a single family home or duplex in the Town of Boone's town limits, the easiest place to start is to Contact Shannon Isaacs, Adoption Program and Sanitation/Recycling Coordinator, to see if you qualify for a free composting bin. However, if you don't qualify, don't fret! We still want you to compost in any capacity you can. That is why we have some alternative suggests on how to get started.

  • Either Purchase a Composting Bin or Create a Composting Pile:
    • A pile works great for bigger compostable items, like yard clippings or leaves. However, if you will be incorporating food scraps, consider buying or creating an enclosed composting structure.
